Credit Where It Is Due

Credit Where It is Due

I like to make photographs, and I enjoy being praised for what I have done. But God teaches a different attitude, one of thankfulness and humility. He pointed that out to me recently. I DO NOT MAKE THESE PHOTOGRAPHS ALONE. I didn't create the light, or the technology which makes photography possible. I didn't buy my camera, it was a gift from my husband. I didn't give myself the ability to see through the camera in order to make an image which others find pleasing. It is right to use what I have been given to the best of my ability, but it is wrong to take credit for what I have not done. God made the light, the elements which are used to manufacture the camera, and the world from which these images come. He has given me gifts: people to teach me, eyes to see with, and a brain to process information. I am thankful for these gifts. He deserves all the praise, not I.

Sky in a Mirror


Almost everything in this shot is a reflection.
Can you find what is not?

Amazing capture! I'm not sure what isn't a reflection. If I were to take a guess I would say the small plants/leaves in the very top right hand corner. Great composition, Dimple! Hope you have a great weekend! Enjoy!

What an interesting shot. I can't be sure, but because of the different light I would also say that the leaves at the top right hand corner are not a reflection????

Liza said...

Amazing capture. I thought you had it in b/w until I saw the caption.

The leaves on the upper corner. :)

Happy LATSOF.

Great shot, I agree with the others, the upper corner of the photo with the leaves.

Definitely the upper corner. Love this!

Paulie said...

Probably the leaves with the sunlight on them is not a reflection.

Love the contrast between the green leaves and the grey sky.

Really? What a fun way to look at the sky? I'll have to try that some time--who knows what camera excitement could happen!
Have a great weekend, Dimple, and thank you, too, for being such a faithful blogging friend. I totally appreciate your loyalty and always love coming over to see what you're up to.
